The Texas Department of Transportation's request for a 30-day extension of the public comment period for the Interstate-69/Trans-Texas Corridor Tier One Draft Environmental Impact Statement has been granted. The request was approved by the Federal Highway Administration which oversees the environmental review process for transportation projects.

TxDOT has held over 500 meetings on the Trans-Texas Corridor including 254 county meetings, 95 environmental meetings and hearings on I-69/TTC, 171 environmental meetings and hearings on TTC-35, and 12 town hall meetings.

The public comment period opened in December, and an extension through April 18th allows more citizens the opportunity to express their views regarding I-69/Trans-Texas Corridor. TxDOT has already received over 14,000 comments regarding I-69/TTC.

Although no additional public hearings are scheduled, Texans can submit comments online or mail them to I-69/TTC, P.O. Box 14428, Austin, TX 78761.
